Decentraland Simplifies NFT Shopping with Cross-Chain Upgrade


Benefiting content creators, players, and contributors alike, the Decentraland Marketplace has embraced a significant upgrade with Squid, the cross-chain liquidity layer powered by Axelar, to make shopping on the platform more easily accessible than ever.

All Decentraland users can now snatch up any NFT listed on the marketplace using both Polygon and Ethereum, provided they have some to spare.

Seamlessly Swapping NFTs with Squid

Squid’s role in simplifying the shopping experience on the Decentraland Marketplace involves enabling cross-chain token trading when purchasing an NFT. When users buy an NFT using a crypto asset that’s not Decentraland’s native currency, $MANA, it seamlessly routes the order to its supported chains (Polygon and Ethereum).

Here’s a step-by-step guide to help navigate this cross-network immersion:

Once logging into the official Decentraland Metaverse, connect your wallet (MetaMask, Fortmatic, WalletConnect, or Coinbase Wallet) using either a desktop or mobile device.

Then, click on the “Collectibles” tab to explore virtual items for sale, using search options and filters for ease of use.

Once finding an NFT, press the “Buy with Crypto” button (recently changed from “Buy with $MANA”) and select your preferred currency.

Lastly, review your order, switch blockchain networks if necessary, and confirm your purchase once satisfied. Then, check out your new NFT in your wardrobe, ready for use within just seconds!

As Decentraland continues to grow, this enhancement enriches convenience and accessibility for the Metaverse’s vibrant community.
